What Is The Big Music Project?

Find out what we’re all about and how we’re breaking barriers to the creative industries!

If you’re 14-25, love music & the creative industries, and want to get your career on the right track then we’re here to help YOU make it happen.

We know how hard it is these days to get your foot in the door but thankfully, we’ve got access all areas, and we’re bringing you along!

We’re dedicated to breaking barriers to the creative industries and making it easier for you to get your foot in the door! Here are four amazing ways that we do this:

  • We have a website that’s chockablock with careers advice and industry insight
  • We find and create amazing PAID internships and work placements in all aspects of the creative industries
  • We work with UK Youth and 110 Music Hubs (or youth clubs) throughout the UK, who run their very own Big Music Projects
  • We’ve also brought Capital XTRA’s Music Potential onboard, offering a programme dedicated to inspiring and empowering people, who are not in education, employment or training, to start their career in music
